Pope Francis has said homosexuals have a right to have a family and their rights should be legally protected in civil unions.
The Pope’s position was stated in a personal documentary done on him and released at a film festival in Rome Wednesday. The position is likely to anger Catholics and especially conservatives in that denomination
The Pontiff said” Homosexual people have a right to be in a family. They are children of God,” the Pope said in the interview.
He said a civil union law should cover their rights.
